Thank you for choosing Fisher Distinctive Dentistry!
We provide many amenities and services that you may not have been offered before in a dental setting. If your back or neck aches while sitting in a chair, we have pillows for support. If you are cold, we have blankets and offer complimentary warm paraffin hand wax treatments during our appointment. We also offer complimentary juice, coffee and tea, and light snacks before or after your appointment.
Before we begin your comprehensive dental exam, we will need to gather some information. Our certified dental assistant (CDA) will meet with you to review your health and dental history and to find out if you have any specific concerns.
Next, we will take any necessary digital X-rays and intraoral photographs; if you are transferring from another dental office, we may be able to request some of these X-rays from them depending on how old they are and their diagnostic quality.
Included in your dental exam are oral cancer and periodontal (gum) screenings, an assessment of your existing restorations (fillings, crowns, implants, root canals, bridges, etc.), a review and evaluation of your X-rays, diagnosis and treatment planning.
If you have been in for routine dental cleanings on a regular basis in the past, chances are we will be doing this for you when you come in for your first check-up with us. However, if it has been a while, we may need you to return for a periodontal cleaning — we will know more after your exam.
Because of the information we gather at your first checkup visit to our office, adults (18+) should plan to spend approximately 90 minutes to two hours with us; subsequent check-ups for adults are typically one hour. For children a new patient exam will take about an hour and subsequent check-ups half an hour to 45 minutes.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Devin Fisher or Dr. Zack Bergevin, our dentists in Port Orchard, Washington, by calling 360-876-0445!
